Child Development Centers

The Community Child Care Council of Santa Clara County expanded our child care services to meet the overwhelming demand for quality child care programs. Having served the child care community for more than 40 years, the agency has seen tremendous success as it grew from an administrator of subsidized child care funds to also being a direct provider of child care services. The following briefly describes our centers and the premiere services offered in our programs.
